The Honest Contrarian: And Other Stories About Washington DC
By: John Patrick Feehery
About the Book
On the morning of September 11th, 2001, John Feehery was running late to his office in the nation’s Capitol building. He had to make a choice. Get his weekly picks in for his dad’s football pool or get the daily press briefing in to his boss the Speaker of the House. As he watched the first plane hit the World Trade Towers, he forgot about those plans and embarked on a crazy day that culminated in him organizing a press conference where members of the House and the Senate sang God Bless America on the steps of the Capitol. The Honest Contrarian is a book about politics, but also about faith, family, and the fight for freedom.
